SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, April 22 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, or 19:30 p.m. UTC, for its seventh launch of Starlink satellites. Falcon 9 will lift off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A backup opportunity is available on Thursday, April 23 at 3:15 p.m. EDT, or 19:15 UTC.
Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported Crew Dragon’s first flight to the International Space Station, launch of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, and the fourth Starlink mission. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported the AMOS-17 mission.
Recently filed permitting requests show SpaceX wants to build a Starlink ground station near its fairing processing facility at the Cape. Not groundbreaking news, but amid the drove of usual construction permits, this one stands out. pic.twitter.com/2hv7a2pnaZ

I drew a calendar on the interior of Columbia during Apollo 11. I found it helpful to be able to keep track of days.
Do you have any tips on how you are spending your time indoors?
